  • In this struggle
    Are we dead or alive?
    Freedom is not existence
    It's why we survive
    Shake our grief
    Hold on to belief
    It can't enslave us forever
    There is relief

    No change will be permanent
    Our strength enduring Bright incandescent
    Take a chance before we fall
    Backs against the wall

    And the sun will rise
    Dawn will break through the blackest night
    Distant in its glow
    This shall pass be still and know

    And there's heartache
    As we search to connect
    Even just for a moment
    Pretend We're content
    There is love
    Know that we are one
    We are all in this together
    Weather the storm

    Look into each other's eyes
    Make the connection before it dies
    It will all disseminate
    As we consummate

    And the sun will rise
    Dawn will break through the blackest night
    Distant in its glow
    This shall pass be still and know

    Is it hopeless?
    Will the fear take control?
    Don't succumb to the numbing
    Sting of defeat
    Take this hate
    Let the bile stagnate
    Hoist the head of Goliath
    Bask in its grace

    Stars realign in the sky
    Glaciers will melt and the oceans rise
    Waves will come crashing ashore
    But withstand the roar

    And the sun will rise
    Dawn will break through the blackest night
    Distant in its glow
    This shall pass be still and know Writer/s: DAVID WAYNE MCCLAIN, PHILIP JOHN DEMMEL, ROBERT CONRAD FLYNN
